Extension: Target invariant

Official URL: http://hl7.org/fhir/StructureDefinition/cqf-targetInvariant Version: 5.1.0-cibuild
Standards status: Trial-use Maturity Level: 2 Responsible: HL7 International / Clinical Decision Support Computable Name: TargetInvariant
Other Identifiers: OID:2.16.840.1.113883.4.642.5.1694

Specifies an invariant that is enforced on instantiated resources. This extension can be applied to any element of a definitional resource (such as ActivityDefinition or Measure) and indicates that the invariant should be enforced on resources that are instantiated from the definition. For example, this extension can be used to define a constraint such as numerator count must be less than or equal to denominator count.

This extension allows invariants to be specified as part of definitional resources as an alternative to having to define a profile to enforce the constraint.

    Summary

    Complex Extension: Specifies an invariant that is enforced on instantiated resources. This extension can be applied to any element of a definitional resource (such as ActivityDefinition or Measure) and indicates that the invariant should be enforced on resources that are instantiated from the definition. For example, this extension can be used to define a constraint such as numerator count must be less than or equal to denominator count.

    • key: id: A unique identifier for the invariant (unique in the context of the resource).
    • requirements: string: A brief description of why the invariant is necessary or appropriate.
    • severity: code: Whether the invariant indicates an error condition or a warning.
    • expression: Expression: An expression providing a formal representation of the invariant condition.
